Yes I am paying them to finish it. Paying as they progress. As soon as they tell me they need the bill clearing after its built up a bit then I have paid straight away without issue. I too would think it is in their interest to get it finished and out of the workshop and on the road as soon as possible.

So assuming you owe them no outstanding money (which you've indicated above) that's terrible service.

Why don't you go and collect it and take it elsewhere? Would MK or MNR would finish it?

How about: Scottish Kit Centre

I dont owe anything. Fully paid up member. I just want them to finish it so I can get it on the road. Taking it away from them and getting someone else to finish it will just lead to more headache and I assume a lot more costs.

Spoke with the guys this week and they assure me they are trying to get a test cancellation slot if they can, but worst case scenario is that they have a test date for 22nd July 2015 booked (unfortunately it is necessary I put the year when talking about this so it isn't confused with the test date they had it booked for originally last year).

Car failed its test. Developed a misfire on the "speed test" when taken up to 70mph. This then caused went towards failing emissions test and also the sound test. Back in on 6th July.

Appears the Power Commander had a firmware fault. Has been sent back to manufacturers who have supposedly fixed it and it is on its way back to Mac#1 now.

Well it passed its retest yesterday..... but not without issue. The Power Commander issue for the misfire was solved but then it appears the water temp sensor failed and was making the emissions run far too high all the time as it kept thinking it was running cold start and pumping too much fuel through like auto choke to get it warmed up, even though it was actually warm. Just meant far too much unburnt fuel coming out the exhaust. Mark managed to figure a way to get it sorted and through the test so now its back at Mac#1 for the sensor to be replaced, aero screen and undertray fitted, and a permanent reverse motor installed (unfortunately needed to safely get it in and out of my garage). Then it will be off to be rolling road set up. All while the paperwork / registration is going through.

I've not been out in mine for about a month and missed it loads. Got a week of leave and a track day booked this week though.

You're in a good place for some good roads too!
